This is as much as loss for obama as it is for the muslim brotherhood. our muslim and chief has welcomed the brotherhood into the white house w/open arms. not good for barry.

never saw that one before!

The Bible is the strangest and most amazing book in the world. Most times when I open it, I see something I've missed or things jump out at me that didn't make sense before. I've also spent much time trying to find something that I know I've read, only to fail as it seemed to now be hidden.

If you haven't read it, I highly recommend The Harbinger by Jonathan Cahn for insight into how easy it is to miss true meanings of certain scriptures. The book also highlights a profound warning for America that many still are not seeing.

The election is meaningless. The military is in charge, and they have the guns and tanks.

They will not give up their power voluntarily. They control the billions of American aid money and are in charge of any construction.

If you don’t like it, come and face the tanks. Or go to America.

yep PapaBear3625, the hammer could become more ratcheted up. Not looking forward to it being ratcheted up, and am praying God does not will it to be so, yet know in my heart the likelihood draws nigh for all our Military Persons, and possibly we civilians (inside our nation) who are this nation’s citizens. Do not want to scare anyone, yet sometimes one should prepare to be scared. Being scared is not something to be avoided. Sometimes being scared creates a Hero.

All along the contention has been between the military and the hardliners. The military eventually stepped aside when the protestors where trying to overthrow Mubarak but they have always tried to thwart the MB.

Which opens up a question ... Would the moslem brotherhood in our White House support cutting off aid to Egypt's Military. One would think yes, if the money was redirected to the moslem brotherhood. If zer0 cannot pull that off would the moslem brotherhood be thinking of other alternatives? This one here would have to say yes.

Ah OK, libsources. These would be the same type of sources that called the Muslim Brotherhood “moderates”. There is no real contention between the MB and the military at all, just like the contention between Sunni and Shi’a is minor and they always come together when it comes to jihad against the kafir. This is purely for the “benefit” of the West, and it”s something that's straight out of Sun Tzu’s Art Of War . . .
All warfare is based on deception. … Hold out baits to entice the enemy. Feign disorder, and crush him.
All part of taqiyyah too. The most believable stuff out of there is the chanting in Tahrir Square about going to Jerusalem to be martyrs, what the presidential candidates say in public about tearing up the Camp David Accords and making Jerusalem the capital of an Islamic Egypt, and other rhetoric along those lines.

A democratic or a republican form of government just does not work in Muslim countries. There has never been one, so why would anyone think it can work now.

Self-government can only work among virtuous people. The reason the Roman Republic was replaced by the Empire is that the people had become corrupted, and were no longer fit for self-rule.

The Egyptians have NEVER known the level of virtue needed for self-rule. It is not part of their culture, and has never been part of it. They have ALWAYS been ruled over.

The announcement is late. I wonder if Obama’s proxies are still on the phone threatening dire consequences if the Muslim Brotherhood is not declared the winner?

Could be! I’m on another site...someone from Switzerland said that MB has won, but it hasn’t been announced.

Many conflicting stories.

Someone from Poland posted this just now....

quote:

Dina Demrdash BBC Arabic journalist

says the news conference of the Supreme Presidential Election Commission is only minutes away, as speculations about both Ahmed Shafiq and Mohammed Morsi wins reaches fever pitch ahead of the results. Tahrir square is seeing tens of thousands of pro- Mursi protesters praying for his win. In Nasr City neighborhood, hundereds of Shafiq supporters are awaiting the results. There is a heavy security presence around the homes of both candidates.

Laz, it's about to become civil war. Think Bush versus Gore with armed gangs, suicide bombers and weaponry shipped in from all sides.

Well, frankly, I like the concept of an Egyptian civil war. The seculars have the military. That means they win. HOWEVER, should Morsi prevail, he is already saying, "Martyrs! March to Jeruselum! We are all Hamas now!".

So, civil war is better than World War Three.

Not necessarily. Not unless there is a concerted purge of the Muslim Brotherhood from the military. A more likely scenario is the military fragmenting into secular versus religious. That means Egypt turns into a warlord-based conflict with outsiders taking sides and shipping in arms.

Unless Egypt gets nukes -- quite impossible -- nobody is marching on Jerusalem unless they want to end up like the Fourth Crusade.

Obama will be trying to get the MB in power. Look for the US Obama to be threatening the military with the cut off of aid and equipment if the Islamists don't get their way.

The Liberal Messiah is not the same as the United States. That will be confirmed in November.

but our own President saw this coming and allowed it to happen...in fact, encouraged it to happen

Americans really are the biggest fools in history.

Our FIRST MUSLIM PRESIDENT's priority is setting up radical Islam for world takeover.

What do you think happened in Libya and WHY? Hussein is setting up Libya and Egypt for the next major war against Israel. Syria is also being set up to fall into the nutjobs hands.

Hussein is not working for us, he is working for them. Are you one of the non-thinking people who believes Hussein is on the wrong side of every issue because he's a radical leftist/incompetent fool?

Think about it, if you can. Hussein is on the wrong side of every issue because he is trying to damage the United States in every way he can before he is hung for treason. Apparently he doesn't have to worry about Americans figuring out who he is until the NY TIMES tells them he is a traitor.

Hussein is no fool and he is not incompetent. Like many Islamic Radical abettors, however, he has a strong marxist tilt and wants a command economy that he and his cohorts control to make it easier for some kind of bastardized islamic caliphate to come into being.

He has meant to bring the free market down for these reasons...and he does not intend to fix it. It is part of the "fundamental change."

Her is who I think he really is:

WHO REALLY IS BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA?

And his actions in the so-called Arab Spring" are bringing about an ISlamic Caliophate as any one who can read a map can tell:


WHAT OBAMA'S ARAB SPRING HAS WROUGHT

Thank you my friend. And yes...they are playing into our Father's plan, and do not recognize it...but in the end, that will be the tale.

I am doing werll. I have pretty much plateaued in my condition and have learned to live with the resulting conditions and disabilities as graciously, and truthfully, as thankfully as I can. Once again, on the mirocosm, our Father';s plan works out for us and that is what is best. it is left for us to decide how to react to and live with it. In my case, I have made the detemination to repeat the words of a great prophet in the old testament..."The Lord giveth, and the Lord taketh away. Blessed be the name of the Lord."

We are told that "all thnigs work together for the good of those that love the Lord," and I have fund thios to be oh so true. ALL things, not kust the pleasant things that we naturally like and aspire to...but also the difficult things if we will turn to Him and seek His counsel and abide His will.

Thanks for asking and God's speed and blessings to you and yours!

BZ.
